Because he was hiding his hair loss and they could see it was affecting his confidence.

I can't watch the video because I have my headphones on watching TV.
So who shaved his head?
Producers of a TV show or his "friends"?

Friends. He was rocking a combover and they felt they did him a favour.

In this case, they did.

Hollywood star was hiding his hair loss!

Wow!

That's so relative to the plain Joe who has insecurities.

It was one of the first videos I watched after I was diagnosed with male pattern baldness, back in 2009.

Here's what I thought of it back then: this doesn't comfort me at all!

Here's what I think of it now: cope.

So what changed? The word 'cope' didn't exist yet in 2009.

The only person who I know had visible hair loss at nineteen had hair recession, and some vertex thinning.

Has anybody else seen someone at nineteen with real hair loss? (Other than chemo?).

Reading between the lines; I dont think he is trying to tell other people to shave it all off. He's just telling an anecdote about how he lost it.

It was super rare for men to cut their very short back in the 1960s so I imagine it was a lot harder for him. All the while trying to launch an acting career with zero experience and probably thinking nobody will cast him because of his appearance.

Perhaps it made him a stronger person in the end to have gone through all that.

It's not bullshit, and I'm not saying it doesn't happen. I'm asking. You need to
stop being so sensitive.

I didn't make a statement saying it never happens to anyone, I was asking if anybody
did experience it.

I was a Norwood three at twenty, so I don't know what your issue is.

Yes, someone at uni. He was NW6 at 19 and had a shaved head. Absolutely awful that this disease can happen at such a young age.

This is guy is a great actor. For that reason, I sometimes question if he is telling the truth,
or acting?

He did lose his virginity before nineteen.

I think this is something that seperates brilliant from average minds: the ability to read between the lines. A man of your capacity should be teaching kids in Vietnam. Just my two cents (no reference to your monthly wage intended).
